Like its namesake river, the Path connects you to the ecology and communities of the Mad River Valley. With sections throughout the Valley from Warren to Moretown, a walk, bike ride, or ski along the Path lets you travel through working forests and farms, stop into local shops and restaurants, catch a glimpse of Vermont history, pause for a swim, or encounter wildlife in their natural habitats.
The variety of landscapes through which the Path meanders makes it an easily accessible recreation and transportation resource; however, it wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of private landowners who host the Path on their land. Please respect those landowners and fellow Path users by sharing the trail, leashing your pets and picking up trash.
Keep your eyes and ears open—there is so much to discover whether you travel the Path every day or it is your first visit. We hope you’ll come back often!
